Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Barbara Strozzi’s birth, this captivating programme delves into the musical and personal lives of Strozzi and two of her main influences and contemporaries, Monteverdi and Carissimi.

From the exquisite, anguished lament for a lost, betrayed love in Strozzi’s “L’Eraclito amoroso”, to Monteverdi’s sensual “Lettera amorosa”, and the fierce, indignant torment of Carissimi’s “Apritevi, inferni”, Elin explores the emotionally-charged, complex and deeply personal musical worlds of these monumental composers.
